The First Week of December

 I am doing Dressing for December with Abigail again this year.  I've held a lot of outfits from last year that barely fit her, but they are so cute.  On the first day of December she wore that above - a blue jumper with little snowmen all over it.  She loved her frosties!  And then she wore a well-worn snow flake dress that twirls!



On Wednesday she had a field trip so she wore her Rockenbaugh Field Trip t-shirt.  She was so excited to ride the bus.  They went to a trampoline park and I just knew I'd get a phone call from the emergency room, but I was wrong.  She had a great time and jumped for three solid hours.  She was SO tired when she got home!

She work up just in time for Choir and she dressed herself in what was one of my favorite outfits last year, but was clearly too small for her this year.  And she added white sandals. 

 And this winter vest from Uncle Doug that she loves so much she can hardly bear to take it off!

Did I mention it was performance night and everyone else was dressed to the nines?

 Thursday she wore this dress that is necessarily Christmas, but I think it fits. 

And her favorite vest

I spent Thursday binding this book with Julie which we sold at a craft fair Saturday.  We are taking the system we use to make our monthly meals and marketing the ingredient list, recipes and how tos



The kids Christmas presents from Ohio arrived this week and Aaron took right to his Legos.  We also got my Keurig (!) and a singing Elsa doll.  Thank you, Grandma. 
 Friday Abigail wore a red dress.  I throw everything red and green into the Dressing for December category.

We got my mom's Christmas card that she made with pictures from last Christmas.  It's so fun and there's a picture of Aaron on the back eating cake.



The kids have been doing an Advent Calendar that my mom sent and every day Aaron opens it up and just reads what it says with out help.  It's absolutely crazy to us.  We are also doing A Meaningful Christmas which is one of our favorite things.
 On Saturday, Jory took the kids to Aaron's Elementary School for their annual fundraiser, Jogging for Johnson.  They ran in the one mile fun run and the kids were so excited. 
 I was at the craft fair.  This was our first sale.  We sold our fifty books in three hours and took orders for another twenty.  We made a good profit.

This was our booth.  It got so crazy.

 Aaron's school is having a gingerbread house contest and Aaron has really wanted to participate, so he and Jory took to building this afternoon.


 We also did a lot of shopping this week for our angel families
 Jogging for Johnson
 Pre-run fun
 With the Dragon.  Carroll lost today.  They were thisclose to the State Championship Game and they lost to the defending champion this afternoon.  It's sad, but if they'd won we were going to be in a babysitter bind next weekend and we've been a little worried.
 At Jogging for Johnson there was a cake walk
 Abigail won!
This was Aaron's finished Gingerbread House.  I wasn't downstairs when the representative school was chosen.

 Aaron was super precise about patterns and which colors went where.

 He spent hours on this.  It was intricate work.
 I sent Abigail's favorite cake pictures to the bakery so they can design her cake for February.  They are making the actual cake purple just for her.

I hope your week was a full of joy as ours!
